That being said, when I first saw the above picture of Sir Ian McKellan I chuckled but then felt a little sad that he had to wear it in the first place.
I have absolutely no difficulties with homosexuality. It makes me sad that some have SUCH difficulty with it (and apparently enough in my geeky community) that McKellan wore the shirt. If any community should be welcoming of those who are "different" it probably should be us geeks and nerds.
Dennis Miller once said "I'm left on a lot of things. If two gay guys want to get married, I could care less. If a nut case from overseas wants to blow up their wedding, that's when I'm right." Jon Stewart said gay marriage was fine with him unless he was going to be forced to "marry another dude". I think that is about where I am these days.
And on the flip side, I get a little frustrated with things that go the other way, like JK Rowling revealing (in an interview) that Dumbledore was gay all along...it seemed unnecessary. It took nothing away from my enjoyment of the books, but that's because it was never really in the books.
I don't know really where I am going with this. Maybe I should have just put the picture on tumblr and left it alone.
